Interventions that create a lasting impact
Doing organisational change and transformation well is still undervalued in organisations. Yet it is still being reported by Gartner that only 34% of projects succeed and Kotter estimates only 30%, even after 30 years of Change Management and 50 years of Project Management. Something is clearly wrong.
That something is change management loosing sight of the people who are impacted by the change and what they need to move through the change curve. Instead, change management has become increasingly focused on the 'process' of change. It often ignores the Leaders who need to own and embody the change first, so that from that embodied state they can act with integrity and help their teams and organisations navigate the change.
Here at Leading Edge Space we focus on the Leaders first, people second and then the process. Because yes process is still needed. It is about humanising the process of change to make it more engaging, motivating and inviting.
Latent potential lies dormant in your organisation. Instead of value being added to your bottom line we see, control and dictatorship, micro-management, bullying, pseudo-leaders, lack of accountability, misused power, alter egos, imposter syndrome, knowledge is power, internal competition, and the list goes on. Sometimes these behaviours are overt but often they are acted out by the nicest of people in a quiet and unconscious way. The culture that this encourages is one of backstabbing, in-fighting, competition, lack of innovation, 'work to rule', fear, disloyalty, cowardice, disempowerment, and the list goes on. All of this behaviour turns people into 'yes'ers', sheep, 'tell me what to do', unmotivated, unengaged and uninspired.
And yes it does affect your bottom line. There are lots of studies now that show this, such that we can no longer ignore it.
At Leading Edge Space we work with your Leaders and their Leadership teams to communicate and behave in ways that inspire and motivate your people, who then become the foundation of your talented organisation that is the powerhouse of success.
